The Salvation To Extreme Over Processed Damaged Hair!
Hello Boys and Girls... It's a new season in 2012!
Bleached and Colored your hair from black to Blonde back and forth?
The price you pay is to have it all fried and had it all chopped off right?
I know! It Sucks! and we've all been down that road before!
Well guess what! Getting your clippers out isn't the only solution anymore.
This article will help you understand the structure of your hair!
So, what is our hair really made of?
Simple! Protein, Keratin and fiber!...
When you're stripping color off your hair it's not just the
color you're stripping, you're stripping everything out of it! Ouch! I know it sounds a bit harsh.
But hey! no pain no gain right? here are some home DIY tips to safe your locks!
Step 1. The Hot Oil Treatment
Moisture is what keeps our hair silky smooth and shiny,
but when we bleach our hair it's like saying goodbye to the friendly H2O...:(
Oh well, hot oil treatments helps you to get it all back!
My favorite tip, "Almond Oil" with "Extra Virgin Olive Oil" ....These two Oils are well known for
treating dryness. Shampoo your hair and towel dry,
mix two oils together and heat it in the microwave for 30sec. It should be warm but not too hot,
slather it all over your hair and wrap it with a hot towel and let it sink in for 20min then rinse, and hello! Moisture!
Step 2. Restoring Protein
Believe it or not "Protein" is what strengthens our hair, bleaching hair takes it all away...
no wonder it snaps off easy...
One of my most effective tricks and what we all have in our kitchen! " Eggs "!
What? Eggs? For Real? Yes! For REAL!...
Egg whites contains a rediculous amount of protein that will help
restore all that strength back into the hair and prevents it from further breakage.
Beat one egg white til foam and slather it on damp hair and leave it for 15-20min then rinse,
twice a week is recommended it but no more then that.
Too much protein can also make our hair become too hard and causebreakage.
Step 3. Sealed it all in so it stays!
Ever heard of the P.H scales? Acidic and Alkaline?
Alkaline opens up cuticles and Acid closes it, when bleaching hair the peroxide opens it and
here's a natural way to close it! Something we have in our cupboards again...
Tah Lah..." Apple Cider Vinegar "
Apple Cider Vinegar is a gentle acid and it's super hair friendly, using it to rinse hair has been very common
for the past few years.
This is the major trick to soften that poor locks of yours and seals up all that goodness you've restored.
Simply rinse it on damp hair and leave it for 10min and rinse with water then you're done!
Simple easy tricks that's ideal if you're on a budget,
Try it! I double dare ya!... If you wanna stay away from scissors then you definitely will!
Stay Beautiful and Keep your Goldie Locks!
